Day one of the “drive-up” version of the Aldergrove Fair was a hit, with all vacant spots filled.
Organizers had opted for an approach that saw groups of vehicles follow a route through MacInnes Farm, pulling over to look at attractions that ranged from a replica Sopwith fighter plane to antique tractors, to Langley-based Circus Lab performers presenting high-wire and juggling acts, a quick-draw demonstration and finishing with a drive down the main street of an old-fashioned town built for the television series “When calls the heart.”
Entrance to the fair is free, but families must register for their tickets online ahead of the event day, which begins at 10 a.m.
“Don’t just show up,” Long cautioned.
If all slots are taken on both days, Long estimated attendance will total more than 800 vehicles, which would put attendance substantially higher, as most cars were occupied by families.

There were 30 time slots available for every 30 minute period, so organizers can monitor the number of people on the fairgrounds.
The Fair site took approximately 60 minutes in total to explore by car.
The fair is a product of at least 10 local organizations coming together, Long said, and several volunteers.
